Etix, a ticketing company based in Raleigh, North Carolina, has purchased ExtremeTix, according to Dave Brooks in Amplify Magazine. Etix CEO Travis Janovich told Brooks that the acquisition is set to be officially announced later this week.
ExtremeTix, based in Houston, was founded in 2000 by Tony DiCamillo, who has been the company’s president since 2016. Per Amplify, the company’s clients include Texas venues Hurricane Harry’s in College Station, Banita Creek Hall in Nacogdoches and Masone’s, as well as NHRA Spring Nationals, TX2K Events, Dirt Track Racing, and the Royal Purple Raceway.
“We’re all over North America,” he told Amplify in a 2016 interview. “We have business in Canada. We’re West Coast to East Coast. Our headquarters are in Houston and we initiate most of our traveling here out of Texas. We’re centralized, I think that makes it more cost effective for us. We also have an office in Florida.”
The move is the latest in a recent shuffle of smaller ticketing companies, headlined by Eventbrite’s purchase of Ticketfly last month.
